49ers have reached out to LT Russell Okung

Mar 10, 2016 at 6:15 PM--


USA TODAY's Tom Pelissero is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers have reached out to LT Russell Okung (Seahawks). Ian Rapoport reported earlier that both the New York Giants and the Detroit Lions have visits set up with Okung.


Okung has spent his entire career withe the Seattle Seahawks since being drafted out of Oklahoma State in the 2010 NFL Draft with the sixth overall selection.

Okung is listed as the best available offensive tackle available in free agency by Rotoworld.com. He is a longtime starter for the Seahawks and considered to be Seattle's best offensive lineman. Okung has played in 72 games and started each. Although, he has missed some time with injuries over his career. He made the Pro Bowl in 2012 and was part of the Seahawks' Super Bowl XLVIII winning season.

The 49ers need help on the right side of the offensive line and Okung is used to the left side, so there is some question on how he would feel about moving to the other side or shifting the 49ers offensive line to accommodate him.

49ers own 4th-best odds to have NFL's best record in 2021

The San Francisco 49ers won just six games last year after a Super Bowl appearance the season before. Most have blamed a league-high number of injuries for the team's regression and expect much more from Kyle Shanahan's squad in 2021 — assuming it can stay relatively healthy. The NFC West is highly competitive and could still be the best division in football. While San Francisco is not expected to repeat at the bottom of the divisional standings, it will be a battle to finish at the top. However, it sounds like oddsmakers have confidence in the 49ers. Bovada released the odds for the best overall record in the NFL. It's no surprise to see last season's Super Bowl participants at the top of the list. The Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers lead the

NFL players are off until training camp begins at the end of July. However, that doesn't mean it's time for players to rest. They need to stay in shape and be ready to compete once they hit the field again. Two San Francisco 49ers players are hard at work. One is rookie quarterback Trey Lance, who is taking what he learned from the team's offseason program and honing his skills. He is working with a seasoned veteran, too. The following Instagram videos popped up of Lance tossing footballs to wide receiver Mohamed Sanu (h/t to Patrick Tulini for the

With organized team activities (OTAs) over, teams are beginning to look forward to training camp, which begins in July. The 49ers were one of the most injury-riddled teams in 2021, and have had their fair share of bad luck already, as running back Jeff Wilson tore his meniscus, swing tackle Justin Skule tore his ACL, and safety Tarvarius Moore tore his Achilles. Still, there is much to look forward to, starting with these five players who are poised to breakout in 2021. 1. DT Javon Kinlaw Perhaps the most obvious pick on the list, Kinlaw seems to be on the verge of breaking out in his sophomore season. Last season, Kinlaw played in 14 games, starting 12, and had 33 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, and one interception to go

Pro Football Focus continues its rankings of position groups across the NFL ahead of the 2021 season. The latest involves all 32 secondaries. Where do the San Francisco 49ers rank? You have to scroll down to No. 20 to find defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans' group. As for the rest of the NFC West, the Los Angeles Rams sit at No. 9, the Arizona Cardinals at No. 22, and the Seattle Seahawks at No. 26. San Francisco was able to keep much of its secondary together this offseason after much of it hit free agency. The team lost Ahkello Witherspoon to the Seahawks but re-signed cornerbacks Jason Verrett, K'Waun Williams, and Emmanuel Moseley. The 49ers also brought
